Why, does it break or stop working after a few months?!

Technology wise this is up there with the iPad it's only suffered because RIM have not attracted developers. Well worth it at this price for web surfing and watching videos.
just picked up a 16gb from currys. i love my apple products and really dont like blackberry phones at all. i must say i absolutely love this tablet, yea it may not have as many apps as a ios/android tablet but its just so easy to use. the browser is really quick as well. bargin at the price and can see me using this more than my ipad

Don't feed the troll (_;)
Wow these are dropping in price so quickly.
Still in stock at Currys in central london for £169 16gb model btw.
Just read up Apple fair play (not for me but fair play) but Samsung?! Hmm copycat 2yr lifespan tat in my POV...
How do these compare to Arnova 7 as looked at one of them in HMV for 250gb for £149 but it seemed really slow for web browsing compared to ipad, yes i know ipad is alot more expensive but i just want fast internet not slow loading pages

So wondered how this performs?

Also can you use a doggle for 3g support? as one main thing i wanted so i can use it in hotels etc

If u want faster internet you need to talk with your local internet provider
Playbook >Arnova 7
But in my opinion Arnova have better OS

But £200 is a lot to spend on a device just for watching videos and surfing the web. I personally wouldn't touch it until it reaches around £100 (and/or someone manages to get Android on there).

The Android compatibility is going to be buggy/slow at best and will of course mean no one bothers to write native apps for the device.

Well i tired them both in HMV with same internet and ipad was alot faster on the internet so dont believe it just to do with internet connection
Had both iPad 1 & 2 in the best... Yes the iPads are a better allrounder with especially with the massive appstore. but if you want just video quality and net browsing then this beats the iPads hands down espeically at this price. plays a lot more video formats too. The smaller widescreen size is much hmore portable than the ipad larger square screen.

PIcked the 16GB on christmas from a hotukdeal post but wanted a 32GB but none in stock at the time. wished i waited for this one.

Hot Hot Hot!

What a random thing to say out of nowhere and in CAPS. Strange.
vote for Blackberry Playbook (near the bottom) to have it's own subforum on xda to encourage devs to make an android port. If not a member, register and if not stll allowed you need a few days after your 10th post in non-dev subforums there:

OS2 for Blackberry Playbook allows developer mode which allows side-loading of android apps. It's a bit of a faff, but pretty easy if you can google. Once on there, the android apps certainly aren't slow or buggy.
This OS is in beta, but it appears that the intent is to have full android compatibility once it is in full distribution. (Hence the android handling and development mode in beta)
Hot ... but there's too many offers in HUK very hard to keep up with all the comments

According this this it doesn't have full compatibility guardian.co.uk/tec…ers and apps that do work won't run as fast as they do on a similar spec Android tablet because of the extra overhead of the Android compatibility layer.

I don't know to be honest, most people know more about tech than me, I am only commenting on my own personal experience with this process and the subsequent running of applications. I agree that it is not fully (or even close to fully) compatible with android apps. This is an ongoing development process which is why the beta OS and development mode are mentioned. My comment was really to assure people that there are ongoing efforts to sort out this compatibility issue. There are plenty of apps that have been converted (most of the biggies), so just a matter of time until things move on.

Currently running android versions of Kindle, Angry Birds and a few other things just for testing purposes (and playing with my new toy) and they run smooth and quickly. This is compared to the native apps that came with the device, which most people agree runs a very passable OS (in speed, stability and functionality).

I'm sure that in a lab or something they can prove that they run several milliseconds slower or something, but I honestly can't see any lag or delay. As mentioned previously, I am far from expert and am just offering my own opinion on the work-around with regards to running android apps on this device.

For people who really want all that android can offer, then of course go for an android device. For me, this is perfect
